I love USFSP! The campus is beautiful, and the waterfront has many activities to keep students busy . There is always something to do, and the community aspect of the school is amazing! Making friends has not been difficult because the activities foster a friendly environment. I have loved all of my professors as well. They are extremely knowledgeable in what they teach, and they make learning engaging and interesting. The smaller size of the school supports building relationships with professors, and the school leadership knows many students by name.

Being at the university of south Florida Saint Petersburg location is a very wonderful experience, although; I have no attended for a long time I have had an amazing time at this university. The area is so convient because it is rite in the city of Saint Petersburg and is on the bay! The professors are very helpful and always want to ensure every student understands the material. The class sizes are 20-25 people which is small enough for the professors to know your name! I love all the clubs here at USF, there are over 100 clubs. I love all the water activities that are offered for free of students and the apartment style homes are perfect for college students
The University of South Florida St. Petersburg is an absolutely beautiful waterfront campus located in the astonishing downtown St. Pete area. The campus has such a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere, reducing the common stress of being a busy college student. In addition, the students and faculty are extremely friendly and professional. The instructors are always working hard to ensure students are not only succeeding throughout the course, but also provide the necessary resources to be a successful student. As I begin my last semester at The University of South Florida St. Petersburg before graduating in December, I know I made the right decision by choosing this school.
